Mike St. Pierre
"I'm 19 years old and don't know how to pray..."
That was my thought when I was a freshman in college. Having been raised a Catholic Christian in a good home, I had a general sense that prayer was something I was supposed to do. The only problem was that I had no earthly idea how to do it.
Since then, my adult life has been filled with different experiences of prayer-sometimes in groups and at other times on my own. What I've found is that St. Francis de Sales was right in saying that "In prayer we must not seek the consolations of God, but the God of consolations."
This process of desiring God takes practice. This site with its blog, podcast and online courses will help you build the "muscle" of prayer such that you have more confidence and pray more regularly, all with a deep sense of joy.
I'm Mike St. Pierre, married to Cary for 20 years and the father of four wonderful children. We make our home in New Jersey and I am the leader of a Catholic non-profit that works on the collegiate level.
My degrees include a B.A. in Philosophy (Catholic University of America), an M.A. in Theology (Seton Hall University), an M.A. in Educational Leadership (Seton Hall University) and an Ed.D. in Education (College of St. Elizabeth).
My articles have appeared in Momentum, Give us This Day, Catechist, America and Productive Magazine. I am an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University and The College of St. Elizabeth and in 2017 received the Seton Hall University Many Are One Alumni Award. I serve on the Board of Directors for Mission Madera, a non-profit serving students in Uganda.
